We had this for HUKD's birthday last year...

*Moved to comments & suggestions*

On another forum i go on we have competitions and stuff, like the forum quiz night say on fridays or something, with general questions and also stuff about the forum, lasting for about an hour...

Only problems with friday nights is that a lot of the regulars will be out :-(

Could do it a different day :)

Good point :)

Only problem is people could cheat as finding answers on the net is extremely easy now :-(
#6
yes but i think it will be fair as EVERYONE playing is on the net so no one will have an advantage,so it could simply be the quickest wins

its easy to see by order of posts

I See what you mean :thumbsup:

I'd be happy (or Sam if you want) to host something like that, with a small prize at the end.

I still think the treasure hunt is good though :p

Well I'd rather not do a treasure hun because that's what we did for the birthday last year and it was popular. One night just wouldn't compare, last year was a big month-long competition and it was really good fun!! I'm sure we'll do something like that again this year...

i think the treasure hunt will take too much organising to be a regular thing?

a simple quiz sounds good to me, yes everyone will use the net but if they know the answer anyway they will be quickest :)

Yep, a quiz sounds good to me aswell. I'd be ahppy to run it, but i anyone else wants to that's ok. :thumbsup:

Yeah sure emasu you could run it, just have like a round of general, round of sport, round of entertainment stuff like that, and then like a good round of forum history or stuff to do with the forum eg what was the 1st deal posted or something

Just something simple and fun for people to look forward to and enjoy...

Also you could do it like wait a couple of weeks, and advertise in the misc section and stuff, and you could have seperate teams like upto 5 people each if lots of people want to play, or just individuals

Sounds good, quite as to when we'd run it would have to discuss with mods etc. :thumbsup:

Anyone else fancy this? it seems like a good idea, and would be quite easy to organise and run. We could do it in teams, or individually if you'd prefer?

I'm certainly going through a pretty busy phase... I know Emma's pretty busy too. I'm not sure if any mods could run it (I'm usually around, I just can't commit to anything) but I could help out if members needed threads messing about with etc in order to do this.

And also suggest that a Thursday Night may be good for some people as it's one of those days where you don't really do much lol. Not the beginning of the week when work loads are heavy and not the end of the week when you go out!

As long as it doesn't clash with any of Emma's future bingo games, I'm all for you using the chat room whenever you want. Just don't go sticking the chat address onto other forums, etc. It's for the HUKD users!! :thumbsup:

I'd certaintly be happy to do it on some thursday night in the near future, maybe the mods that are around could police it or something? Topics for the quiz could be posted here as suggestions, then finalised nearer the date :thumbsup:

I'm afraid that the chat room can't actually be "policed" as it is because it's a free chat and there's no Admin controls.

If any trouble-makers appear then all that needs to be done is right-click on their username in the users online list and click on "ignore". I was considering moving to a new chat where I have controls but it was even less user-friendly than the current version and I thought I'd rather sacrifice the Room Admin controls for ease-of-use.

Another good thing to do is go to http://members.parachat.com/modules.php?name=Your_Account&op=new_user to register your HUKD username as your own password protected one in the chat room. When you go to chat you will type in your username as normal and then be prompted for the password. This stops other members from pretending to be you. :)

I've been lobbying Admin for a HUKD on-site chat room which operates via your HUKD login but he's not given in yet lol. :giggle:

So, putting other stuff aside, can we do this on a thursday night?

It's upto you when you want to do it and when it suits you best, how long you need to get it organised, etc. I don't think we have anything planned for the next few weeks, so it's 100% upto you.

Have opened up a new poll now, where you can select which day you want it. After a week or so, we'll see how the votes are going and select a night from that. Or how about a mass debate on the subject? :giggle:
